Hi,

I want to install Softaculous: https://www.softaculous.com/docs/admin/installing-softaculous-in-cpanel/

I need execute this commands:

wget -N http://files.softaculous.com/install.sh
chmod 755 install.sh
./install.sh

1- But "wget" will download a file. In which directory you recommend me i stay before execute this command for do correctly the installation? (with command "cd").

/root
/tmp
Other

2- After do installation you recommend me remove "install.sh"?: rm install.sh

Too i want to install JetBackup: https://docs.jetbackup.com/manual/whm/GeneralInformation/installation.html

I will use this commands:

yum install http://repo.jetlicense.com/centOS/jetapps-repo-latest.rpm
yum clean all --enablerepo=jetapps*
yum install jetapps-cpanel --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=jetapps

3- "yum" command will download a temporal file for do installation?.

4- In which directory you recommend me i stay before execute this command for do correctly the installation? (with command "cd").

Thank you very much.

If you just look into the server as room you will be in roots 'home' folder. For Softaculous, that is as good of a place as anywhere else to run the wget. After run the installer, you can simply rm install.sh to remove it, and then you have cleaned up after yourself. That may save you time later if you have to wget another program that happens to use install.sh (which is a common name for installing software).

It really does not matter where you run the yum commands from for JetPack. It will all go where yum want's it to go.
